Playmakers Indoor Sports facilitates the frolicking needs of recreationalists with a full menu of soccer, lacrosse, flag football, and paintball in a climate-controlled arena with a turf field. Every weekend, the field sprouts a series of inflatable bunkers for Friday-evening paintball sessions. Intermediate-leveled sharpshooters strap on provided protective gear and the equipment necessary for dappling human canvases with high-speed brushstrokes.
Inside the iconic Louisiana Superdome, which has hosted six Super Bowls, the Tulane Green Wave footballers will take on the Army Black Knights for homecoming. From the sideline or the end zone, you will get inspiring views of the playing field as the Green Wave attempts to match last year's spectacular 17–16 win against the Army, which came late in the game and made the team's pelican mascot squawk with glee. The stadium features large video displays to give guests a second angle on the action and simulate the feeling of sitting in an enormous sports bar, and every level has concession stands to keep fans from running out of energy and withering into fan-raisins.
Recently featured in the Times-Picayune for its riveting staging of Blackbird, Elm Theatre brings socially conscious theater to New Orleans's drama devotees. North Baton Rouge native and recent Windy City dweller Garrett Prejean returns to his home state to teach introductory acting to aspiring stage stars and uncanny De Niro impressionists sick of doing scenes with their reflection in a mirror. Prejean is a graduate of The Second City’s acting program, and he later taught at the famed comedy-star breeding ground. At Elm Theatre, he leads a series of workshops that includes the Acting 1 course. Groupon holders will be treated to an exclusive, three-week abridgement ($31.25-per-week value) of this course, with no required long-term commitment or blood-signed contract. The three-week session will touch on monologues, auditions, acting exercises, and the fundamental techniques actors use to create and finely tune their characters.
